I'm starting to think about doing the timing chain on my 2011 Cooper D (BMW engine). The car has done 82k miles, so it's getting close to that time.
Thing is, the car is worth about £3k and I've been quoted £1700 to do the timing chain (admittedly including the clutch).
It just feels like a lot of money to spend on the car relative to it's value.
So, the kind of questions I have are:
- have others taken the plunge and done the chain on the MCD?
- what is the latest age/mileage you'd consider doing the chain?
- will the car be ok for mega mileage if I did decide to do the chain?
